my 97 riv is having the same problem. It won't start with the key hardly ever anymore. Basically there is NO way to disable the system unfortunately. You can only "fool" it by taking the resistance of hte pellet in your key, and then placing a resistor in series to teh VATS wiring. You''ll have to cut the factory wiring to do it though. I have anothe rproblem though unforutnately. Even with the resistor in place it doesn't always start.

the VATS box has to be built for the right key resistance. The ones you find from other cars have a 1 in 16 chance of being right.....

Thank you kindly.. I found out any car stereo shop can do this, so i might run it into edmonton tomorrow, if it starts
about lunch? id love to, but as you may or may not know I hav'nt been here for a long time. Ive been overseas actually training guys to weld, i got picked because I have basicly all my welding tickets and some millwright tickets. 2 months in, 1 month out.. I'll be gone on the 10th of sept.
Thanks for the offer though
